AC Charging for EVs

Linga EV Charger at Nhill

After 2yr 9 months of driving an EV, here are some of the AC destination chargers I have used locally and on long trips. I use these when I am parked for work, shops, beach, park or library etc.

My Tesla 3LR accepts a rate of 11kW per hour of AC, so, for example, my car tops up with 22kWh from 50% to 80% in 2 hours.

Type 2 Cable
I carry and use a Type 2 cable at non Tesla chargers. There are different strengths of cable, 7kw or 22 kw. For Tesla you need the 22 kw. They are expensive, but that’s because they have thick copper inside them and ruggedly insulated and built to last. More info on my Type 2 Cable post here.
